Hello Everyone!!

I'm very excited to be a new member on this fine forum. I've been lurking for a bit and must say, I have never seen a more professional, courteous and helpful forum. Truly a tribute to the quality of the members and moderators here. While I am new to the forum and photography, I am not new to Pentax. My first experience with cameras was with a friends Pentax K1000. My first real film Camera was a Pentax ME Super and my first DSLR was the Pentax K100D. My current camera is a Pentax K500 with the kit 18mm-55mm and 50mm-200mm lens. As you can probably tell, I am a man with a rather limited budget to support my renewed hobby. Anyhow -- I consider myself a "lucky" photographer as opposed to a skilled one. If I manage to get a nice shot, it is purely by happenstance and not attributed to any skill. I'd like to change that and that is why I am here!! To learn all I can about the art of photography within the context of what my kit will allow me to do. Based on what I've seen of this forum so far -- I've certainly come to the right place!!

Thanks and I'll be seeing ya'll around!!

Welcome aboard!
This is indeed a helpful form but I am not sure about professional :P
Check out all the great photos here for inspiration and don't forget to ask all your questions not matter how silly they may be.

Enjoy your K-500, I am sure you soon will be able to take good pictures without rely on "luck"

Welcome to the forum, there's certainly plenty of information around here, it's remembering that I find the problem these days, it's an age thing.

Welcome aboard! I'm all for using what you have to its limits before buying new gear.
Remember the Marketplace here, when you do decide to expand your kit.
